10 then:

Billy Bragg - "Live Solo Bootleg", solo recording from Australia, early 2000s, sold at BB gigs.

Cardiacs - "All That Glitters Is A Mare's Nest", at the peak of their "fame".

The Chameleons - "Live in Toronto". 1987 gig, Chams live were always great because of the ad lib additions to the lyrics and tunes.

The Durutti Column - "Live At The Venue". There is a lack of decent DC live albums, especially covering the last decade when Vini's been out an d about more than ever. However, this does have the terrific live take on "Jacqueline".

Echo & the Bunnymen - "Live In Liverpool", early 2000s set. Great version of "Ocean Rain".

The Fall - "In A Hole". Difficult to pick just one, but this probably has the classic-est line-up.

Joy Division - almost impossible to chose one gig, so let's have "Paradiso", which has been semi-officially released.

Kraftwerk - "Minumum Maximum", recent best-of run through, but what style!

New Model Army - "... & Nobody Else", although "Raw Melody Men" is just as good.

The Wedding Present - "Shepherd's Bush Welcomes...", another recent set by a reformed band. Two good double sets have been released on Scopitones as well: "Live 1987" and "Live 1988". Can't wait for the "Seamonsters" era to get added.

Just as well we're talking officially released gigs though, as much more quality stuff has only been released on boots. For example, neither New Order nor the Smiths are well-represented by official live albums.
